According to NFL.com, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio says he didn’t know about Lynch’s plans ahead of the game...
quote:

“On Marshawn, talked to Marshawn trying to make sure we’re on the same page,” the coach said. "He said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself.’ I said, ‘So you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem. But I’m going to respect you as a man, you do your thing. We’ll do ours.’ It’s a non-issue for me.”

Don't know the length of his contract or the terms, however hope it's only a one year deal with no guaranteed money, etc. Cut his arse loose if so!

With the alt right movement and other nationalist groups marching through towns with Nazi flags without the condemnation of the president. Why should they?

When you reward them for bad behavior it does nothing to curb the bad behavior. Typical mealy mouth Americans putting up with this shite.

Judging by NFL ratings over the last year, there are an awful lot of people who aren't putting up with it.

The anthem wasn't written for him, so why should he stand! Do your research on it!

Lynch kneels and has a job. Why? Because he's good enough. This outta put the rest the Kaepernick drama but it won't.

Well if you completely set aside all the other stuff Kaepernick as well as his GF have said/done in addition to his "silent protest" you might have a more valid comparison.

Cmon now... Kapernick is a lot better than most backups in the NFL, definitely better than all of the 3rd string guys. The reason he doesn't have a job is because his personality is cancerous.
